Curious isn’t care.  a poem by Ryan Lowrie

Grocery shopping with a limp from a torn thing that was treated as far as it could go

I’m standing in front of the glass doors of the frozen food section.  

Pondering between types of frozen french fries.

  above and beyond the soft jazz musak pop rock that flutters down from the dusty bunnied ceiling I hear a grown woman whimper.

Over my shoulder I spot a woman blowing her nose.  She looks like a supervisor I used to have in shameless laborious wage chasing adulthood.  Using a tissue covered thumb to clean out the unpleasantness from her proboscis, she spots me gandering over my shoulder at her and split second polite smiles before registering that I was another wage chimp beneath her iron fist.

Long time no see, sighed in defeat.  How have you been?

I shrug and ask her what she’s crying about.  She asks me why do I care about what she cares and I tell her that I don’t care but I’m curious.

She was picking out a frozen cake to take to her mom’s for her mother’s birthday next week because she didn’t have time to cook a cake.  She could cook a cake in a week.  It’s not a question of time.  It’s a question of wanting to and she doesn’t want to and that makes her feel guilty because it’s her mom and she should care more about her mother but she doesn’t and that makes her feel bad that she didn’t become a better person to her mother.  She just realized that she didn’t become the person her mother wanted her to be.

We stood quiet in the frozen food section for a few minutes nodding and then I asked if her mother had become the woman she wanted her to be as a kid.  What does that have to do with anything?  Everything.  

You feel you didn’t become the person your parents wanted you to be.  They probably didn’t become who you wanted them to be either.

Chances of them becoming the older person you wanted them to be are just as slim because you’re not them and they’re not you and eventually you’re going to have to do your own thing and sever the parents’ leash.  The sooner the better.  If your mother doesn’t want to eat crow then let her eat cake.

I've headcanoned for a long time that Danny dies super young - like, late teens/early twenties. He's been too lucky for too long, even if most ghosts aren't actively trying to kill him. Maybe it's not even ghosts - maybe he's just in the wrong place at the wrong time. But he dies early and since he has unfinished business, he's back again - but maybe not ALL of him. He's not the Danny we all know and love. Maybe he realises this. Maybe he doesn't. Either way, he's around to watch everyone die.

Hold onto your seat Anon because Danny dying then coming back is an idea I love.

When ghosts die, they melt into ectoplasm. Danny is no different, and if he dies in his ghost form there won’t be a body left to bury. Danny Fenton and Danny Phantom both go missing, and Sam, Tucker, and Jazz are beyond worried. They search everywhere- and Vlad’s twice. It’s two weeks after he goes ‘missing’ that Jazz, while getting out of the shower, finds her name written in the steam on the mirror.

Of course, she’s terrified. That is in no way shape or form natural, and then she thinks she sees something in the corner of her eye. Jazz screams and puts her hand on the mirror to support herself, but when she turns towards it there’s nothing there. And she’s smudged her name.

The next event that happens is a group of ten year old boys playing with an Ouija board. They contact a spirit who says his name’s Danny, and one of them asks if the spirit is Danny Phantom. Their reply is 'Yes and no’, and when one of the boys ask what that means, Danny tells them he 'was a Fenton first.’

One of the boys tell their mom, who freaks and goes to Maddie and Jack demanding they explain. She doesn’t get a chance to, and ends up yelling at Jazz instead. Jazz gets Sam and Tucker, and they get an Ouija board.

They don’t talk to Danny personally, but the spirit they talk to claims the beings like him are called 'Flickers’, since they flicker between this world and another. Flickers, by most people, can only be seen from the corner of your eye and sometime in mirrors. And then that Flicker tells them a location that they might be interested in.

It’s behind a dumpster in an alleyway, and there’s a Fenton Thermos a little ways away. And all over this location is one of the biggest puddles of ectoplasm they have ever seen. And in the dust and the dirt, there’s something written which looks suspiciously like 'I’m sorry.’

It’s Tucker who breaks down first. Then Jazz, but Sam just stares at it numbly for a few minutes. Then she sees a broken mirror a little ways away, and it almost looks like Danny is standing right behind them.

“Bobby has a very open mind. He hears and feels a lot of things that are beyond the limits of jazz as that term has been conventionally used. Also, he’s a very warm person–direct and candid–and that comes through in his music. What he plays has a particular lift to it because he himself is so alive, because he so digs being.” - Herbie Hancock

Rest in peace, Charlie Haden (6 Aug 1937 - 11 July 2014)

Thank you for your beautiful music

Thank you for your inspiration

You are one of the most beautiful human beings, ever

Your music is timeless

You have gone to leave us

But your legacy and work will never be forgotten….

The world is deeply saddened…

anonymous asked:

do u know what kind of music adam likes? i've never really seen it addressed anywhere so i'm v curious! if u don't know for sure, what do u think he likes?

I actually do know some of the music he likes! 

He listened to more folk music after working on Inside Llewyn Davis, and enjoyed it. He had been listening to some folk music before working on it, too. (3:00)

He didn’t listen to a lot of secular music growing up. His stepfather is a Baptist Minister and his, “mom plays the piano and does the kind of Easter programs and leads the songs, and so [he and his sister] were recruited to sing in the choir.” (x) So, as a teen he loved Rachmaninoff and listened to his third piano concerto at night on headphones a lot. (3:25)

Also, in his apartment living room, “on a used upright piano from Harlem, he plays Rachmaninoff, though he wants to get better at jazz.” (x) So, he still really likes Rachmaninoff and also some jazz.

In addition to the piano, he owns a guitar and a bass and does play them. (x)

I’m sure he likes other kinds of music beyond Rachmaninoff, jazz, and a bit of folk here and there. I don’t know what I would speculate, but it would be funny if he hates Maroon 5 in real life. (x)
